Houston Audubon:  Sanderling (Calidris alba)

Sanderlings are often seen on peninsula beaches. They are regularly found in small flocks running back and forth on the beach, picking through sargassum or probing for tiny prey in the wet sand left by receding waves. When not feeding they can be sleeping high on the beach in the dry sand.

Sanderlings are extreme long-distance migrants breeding only on High Arctic tundra. They are now returning to our beaches where many spend the winter. What a change for them to leave the chilly Arctic and arrive on the peninsula in August. We usually have some non-breeding Sanderlings on our beaches in the summer also.

The kakapo is a critically endangered species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length.

The total known population is only 126 living individuals, as reported by the Kakapo Recovery programme, most of which have been given names.Because of Polynesian and European colonisation and the introduction of predators such as cats, rats, ferrets, and stoats, the kakapo was almost wiped out. Conservation efforts began in the 1890s, but they were not very successful until the implementation of the Kakapo Recovery plan in the 1980s. (x) 

There are ways you can help save the kakapo population through donations, adoptions, voluteering, becoming a supporter, or buying merchadise. 

Please spread the word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE DON’T LET THIS BEAUTIFUL ADORABLE SPECIES OF BIRD DIE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can find more information on the endangered kakapo herehere, and here .
